INSTITUTE OF ART HISTORY of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation, situated at 5 St. Isaac's Square, a research institution. Patterned after the Institute of Art History in Florence, it was founded by Count V. P. Zubov in 1912 and situated in Zubov's house, built by architect G. A. Bosse in 1843-47. Members of the institute held public readings, compiled catalogues of art collections, and made up a library for the history of fine arts. Handed over to the People's Commissariat of Education after the October of 1917, the institute was turned into an educational research institution and renamed the State Institute of Art History, with Y. N. Tynyanov, V. M. Zhirmunsky, B. M. Eichenbaum, B. V. Asafyev, R. I. Gruber and V. N. Vsevolodsky-Gerngross, et al. working at the institute in various times. It was reorganised as the Leningrad Branch of the State Academy of Art History. United with the Theatre Institute in 1962, under the common name of the Leningrad State Institute of Theatre, Music, and Cinema, it worked as a research department of the institute. It gained the status of a research institute in 1990 and took back its original name in 1998. There are eight departments in the institute. These are the departments of theatre, music, cinema, fine arts, folklore, musical instruments, art culture, and source study. There is also a film room, manuscript room, and scientific library in the institute, the latter containing over 260,000 volumes.
